than a year into president obama's second term. we're talking about the race for president. last night new york senator chuck schumer urged hillary clinton to run for the white house, saying she'd lead his party to victory. and today new jersey governor chris christie is traveling around new jersey as he runs for re-election in what's widely seen as a test run for president himself. david gregory is moderator of "meet the press." good morning. great to see you. >> morning, lester. >> schumer in his endorsement of clinton says she has his full and unwavering support. with her his party with vanquish ted cruz, the tea party republicans in 2016. i'm curious, does this start to sound like the beginning perhaps of a series of coordinated and carefully timed endorsements to give her candidacy a ring of invincibility or inevitability? >> yeah, i think you're right. i think that's the right instinct. as i talk to supporters of hillary clinton, they're unabashed about saying that she's running. that all signs point toward it. even though there are some who still cling to the idea that she

to get off year elicks. it is a base vote. the reason president obama is in northern virginia today. the coalition that allowed him to get it in 2008 and 2012 since 1964 is because he turned out single women of young voters and in this case federal workers i think. they are calculating and the shut down had a negative effect and they were affected by the shut down and he is more of the same. and i think it is going to be about shut down and they are the least likely to turn out in an off year election. interesting. thank you so much. we are going to take a short break and talk about the government shut down and health care and two of the reasons that the president's approval rating has dipped. can he turn it around before the 2014 midterm elections we will come right back. especially today, as people are looking for more low, and no calorie options. that's why on vending machines, we're making it easy for people to know how many calories are in their favorite beverages, before they choose. and we're offering more low calorie options, including over 70 in our innovative coca-cola fre
